Roosevelt 2017-2018 Curriculum Guide
This document will cover classes offered at Roosevelt High School in addition to graduation requirements, 4 year planning, and grading policies.
Roosevelt High School offers a variety of options for students who have been identified as TAG (Talented and Gifted) or those who are looking to challenge themselves more in the classroom. This includes Advanced Placement courses, Dual Credit courses in which students earn college credits, and the ability to take more advanced courses earlier in the students’ high school career.
The TAG Coordinator for Roosevelt is Clair Roix (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students have several opportunities to retake classes they have either not passes or want to earn a higher grade. These include:
- Portland Evening Scholars
- Portland Summer Scholars
- Virtual Scholars
For more information and/or to sign up for one of these options contact your child’s school counselor.
Credit for Work/Volunteer Experience
Students can earn up to 2 elective credits per year for completing a required number of hours for working at a job and/or volunteering starting in the summer before their freshman year (a total of 6 credits for all 4 years of high school). Students will need to fill out the Credit for Proficiency form and follow the directions on it to earn this credit. For more information talk with your school counselor. To download the form click email@example.com.
For students needing additional support for their studies Roosevelt offers these options:
- We encourage students and families to communicate directly with their teachers if they find themselves struggling in a class. Teachers are the best resources for additional support and will often times work with students one-on-one when available. Teacher emails can be found under the staff link on the Roosevelt home page.
- SUN School afterschool tutoring will offer tutoring for all students Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 3:30pm to 5:30pm, and Wednesdays 1:50pm to 4:30pm. For more information contact Moryah Schindler at firstname.lastname@example.org
- The Step-Up Program offers various support to students considered an Academic Priority. Tutoring is Monday-Thursday 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm. For more information, contact Sergio de Barros at email@example.com
